Life is an extraordinary journey toward greater awareness, understanding and experience. As living beings, infused with biophotons of light, we consciously and unconsciously interact with our environment. The possibilities of our responses are infinite. Choosing the optimum response is hugely beneficial.
Over the past four years, I have integrated into my homeopathic practice a system of kinesiology called Kinesthetic Resonance Method (KRM). Therese Boyle RCHom has adapted this very fine form of muscle testing into a system that allows us to make a quantum connection with our clients and energetically check their resonance with over 3000 potential remedies. This initial testing only takes 5-10 minutes at the end of the consultation. Through this process with our clients we are able to identify the remedies and potencies that are needed to facilitate their healing journey. For me, this has been a major step forward in how I practice homeopathy. By accessing the client’s innate knowledge of their internal resources they move forward with mind, body and spirit, in unison.
As a homeopath working in this way it is a release from the overly analytical approach of choosing remedies for clients, agonising over these choices and often wondering if I had missed the indicated remedy.
Having already had 10 years working as a classical homeopath before using Kinesthetic Resonance, I knew there were multiple ways to support our clients to health. In hindsight however, I didn’t really understand the process of healing then as intimately as I do now.
I am now much more accepting of the route each individual takes to be healthy. It may be one remedy or many that are required. It is a beautiful dance through an extraordinary field of light energy.
KRM in conjunction with homeopathy truly provides a quantum approach to healing.
The development of C4 homeopathic by Witold Ehler, Alize Timmerman and others, has opened the way for homeopathic medicines to work beyond the individual, rippling through the field of our family, community and beyond.
Each level of the triturating process to create C4 remedies works at a different level in the field. The C1 level manifests symptoms primarily from the physical realm; C2 from the emotional realm; C3 from the cognitive and mental realm and C4 from the level of the soul. As we go beyond C4, we move into the greater field of community, which is why it is not unusual to hear a person say after a C5 or C6 remedy that a family member who was disconnected from them for years suddenly writes or calls. Such is the pulse through the vibrational field when we choose to work beyond ourselves.
Our work as homeopaths is to walk beside our client, in their own time, providing the support that is needed. We bring our acquired and innate skills to the journey and, where necessary, call on the skills sets of other therapies when that is required.
Lucy’s (name changed for privacy) story is a lovely example of self-directed healing toward greater happiness, understanding and wellness.
Lucy (early thirties) has consulted with me for the past two years and together we have selected remedies using the Kinesthetic Resonance Method. I have noted use of this system by the initials ‘KRM’. ‘RX’ indicates the client has ‘tested in’ as needing the previous remedy.
Lucy arrives at my clinic with long blond hair that tends to cover her face. Her chin has signs of acne. She is softly spoken and gently laughs to herself as she tells her story. She is married, with two children, the youngest still breast fed. For the sake of brevity, I have selected just her main presenting symptoms.
First Consultation: 22/3/10
Excessive growth of body hair, especially bikini area and lower abdomen. Previous medical tests have shown DHEA levels are high. Painful indurated facial acne, low energy, aches and pain. Lower back pain. Burning in one foot with hot head. Lucy has gained weight since she was pregnant with her second child. She is emotionally hypersensitive. She has a history of sexual abuse, depression, and some post natal depression.
KRM: Oleum jecoris 20x 3 drops daily
Comment: Dr J Clarke says Oleum jecoris (cod liver oil) is used for topical treatment of ringworm in a tubercular patient. Faulty nutrition in children. Always taking colds. Abnormal hair growth or alopecia. Emaciation or weight gain.
The decimal potency selection and narrow totality of this remedy indicates that Lucy’s system has chosen to work at a physical (C1) level.
Follow up: 20/4/10
Lower back pain less but returned last week. Better immune response. No longer burning foot and only occasional hot pains to head. Few acne outbreaks. Desire sweets++. Feeling sad and down. Hair growth unchanged. Old symptom of psoriasis returned for a few days. Energy improved, less feeling of being ‘on edge’, generally happier. Breast engorgement decreased a couple of days later (she is currently breastfeeding).
KRM: Oleum jecoris 20X 3 times a day and less on good days.
Comment: the physical symptoms are improving and immune response is better. Her emotional state is more clearly seen and old symptoms have returned and resolved again.
Follow up: 19/5/10
Much better. Tummy bug last week but not as exhausting as during previous bout, when baby was 5 month old. Back ache improved but sore at present. Hair growth a little worse. Lots of acne. Recurrent dream of her lost cat, she searches for him and finds him. This dream recurs for many years now, always finding the cat in the end.
KRM: Oleum jecoris Q11 5 drops daily for 2 months.
Comment: still good improvement on the remedy and her system is still selecting the remedy albeit at a different slightly higher potency of the C3 level. At the subconscious level, I interpret the dream as a positive sign since the cat, perhaps representing a part of herself, is always found.
Follow up: 14/7/10
Sniffly nose but didn’t get the tummy bug that the rest of the family came down with. Bout of mastitis (fever, aching, red stripes radiating from breast) when sleep-deprived, caring for the sick family members. Back ache returned. Acne is coming to a head except one pimple on chin that is not coming out. Desire sugar ++ . Drinking lots of raw milk now.
KRM: Oleum animalis. This animal oil is indicated for effects of loss of animal fluids, especially nursing women. The remedy is not suitable for this acute breast infection so a different remedy is selected.
RX: Phytolacca 200C, t.d.i for two days.
KRM: Thyroid protocol (T3 6c, Zincum met 12c, Selenium 200c) twice daily for two weeks after Phytolacca.
KRM: Oleum jecoris Q15 one drop daily after the Thyroid protocol has been completed.
Comment: breast tissue has the second largest store of iodine in the body after the thyroid. During breast feeding, there is a much higher need for iodine for the health of baby and mother so thyroid support is given to support this process. Advised her to increase her dietary sources of iodine (seafood, sea vegetables).
Follow up 13/9/10
Mastitis responded well to Phytolacca. Energy is good. Improved bowel function at end of the Thyroid protocol. Feeling hot.
She has not taken Oleum jecoris drops for 2-3 weeks. Lower back achy before menses since teens, improved with Oleum jecoris drops. Bloating and tenderness with menses has returned, which had improved on drops. Acne is coming and going, worse before menses. It feels as though something is brewing.
“Acne almost feels like it is not part of my body - a foreign big thing stuck on my face, it is a separate being. I don’t want anyone to see me when my face is like this. I am being punished for something. It is associated with anger and rage, things wanting to come out, to get rid of things. I have fairly quick temper, I can feel all this rage and I leave the house, go out and get in the car and I really yell it all out, then I come home and feel relaxed and peaceful - when I was younger I would go out and ride my horses – I had a miserable depressed feeling. When I’m on the horse I feel quite comfortable, in the right place, the sense of freedom, in the fresh air, the movement, speed, connection with horse. I loved being around them or on them. From 4 years old I hopped on them, and this felt right. I got such a big sense of relief from going out riding. When I was younger I felt the world was ending - no hope, no way out, stuck in a rut or a pit; now I feel like that but I know it’s not true.”
KRM: Lac equinum 1M one dose every 6 days.
Comment: now, the patient has the strength to face the emotional issues related to frustration with her ‘herd’. She tells us where to find her next remedy, in the solace of her relationship with a horse. This is an adaptive strategy that allows her freedom from these stressful relationships and may have been a pattern from very early in her life. The remedy is needed repeatedly as her family situation is currently an obstacle to cure.

Breast infection returned but resolved with continuing feeding and compresses. Phytolacca given, to be taken if needed.
Follow up: 21/10/10
From the last appointment until a few days ago, no skin eruptions on chin or forehead. 5 weeks of feeling good and not having to hide behind her hair. Had assessment with social services regarding sexual abuse. She felt flushed and anxious that night and said:
“I saw the acne coming back - it felt foreign as if it shouldn’t be there. I definitely didn’t want it to be there - I felt dirty, ashamed, yuk, I hated myself (she cries). I look in the mirror, I just hate you! With my weight and my skin, I look in the mirror and it is so justified - it is disgusting. I have seen how clearly my emotions tie in with my body stuff.
Lately, I have been on the spiritual plane, astral traveling. I was asking for help from angels and guides. I felt someone in the house. I really have to wake myself up and get up. Then, I was awake and I went out through the lounge window into space. It was a series of visions, of stars, very dark blue, I am out there and I haven’t asked for any protection. What if I can’t get back to my body? I need to be there for my son.
I had trouble breathing, then a voice said ‘you are not underwater, you can breathe.’ At the very end, when I thought about coming back to my body, I did feel as though I was under water, exactly like diving underwater and knowing you have to come up for the next breath. I could feel myself gasping for breath.
The noise of leaving my body was deafening. It is like being on tarmac and hearing 20 jet engines going through my head, and angels wings beating as well. After that experience I realized that a lot of things going wrong with me are self-punishment. I realized that I am carrying deep shame and I am punishing myself for it. A voice said ‘it is not Lucy’s pain’ - but I am carrying it. I started to feel some forgiveness of him (the perpetrator) which I have never been able to do before.
I had a dream about looking at property with a lot of land belonging to a friend. My husband wanted to buy it and I felt ready to move on to this land with the horses. This stuck with me.”
I encouraged Lucy to hand those feelings of shame back to the perpetrator - they are his feelings, not hers. Fifteen months later, Lucy writes “This is the most important tool anyone has ever given me. I imagined hundreds of pack horses carrying his shame and guilt back to him. I have never experienced the horrible, disgusting feeling (relating to the abuse) that I could not even put into words, again. I feel almost totally recovered from the effects of the sexual abuse – it is amazing to reach this place, I didn’t ever think I would.”
RX: Lac equinum 1M one dose in clinic.
KRM: Living Tree Orchid Essence - Unveiling Affection - opens the heart to love yourself.
Comment: there seems to be a remedy coming up from the human remedies, indicated by language such as ‘astral traveling’, ‘angels and guides’, ‘very dark blue space’, ‘being underwater’. At the moment she is doing tremendous emotional work processing the abuse situation so I will wait until testing indicates she is ready to go there.

Felt younger and lighter after the last visit. Last week her husband went on a ‘bender’ of drug-taking, drinking and gambling. Lucy was able to contain her anger so her husband could talk about it and apologize. Her sense of self-worth was not very affected by the incident and she was able to express how it had hurt her. Her back was somewhat sore.
Skin had more clear patches. She had a big cyst but it didn’t feel foreign. Menses have improved. No more astral traveling.
After this she had a dream “I got married, and on the wedding day my husband-to-be unexpectedly gave me a lot of jewelry, I felt really special and treasured.”
Wore a bikini! Doing the community weight loss program based on low GI and avoiding sweets.
RX: Lac equinum 1M one a day for three days
RX: Unveiling Affection as needed.
Follow up 15/12/10
Had a cold, sinusitis, lots of mucus, felt as if in a bubble. Anger coming up last week related to a visit from her husband’s family.
We discussed how horses communicate with each other about boundary issues.
RX: Lac equinum 1M (6 spare doses to repeat as needed for anger).
Comment: in my experience, when patients say ‘last week such and such’ something important is happening and I have learned to listen to this.
Lots of ‘positives’. Skin is very good most of the time, just some premenstrual outbreak. Extra doses of Lac equinum taken when anger surfaced, usually before menses.
“Most of the time I feel happier than I have ever felt before.” Doing lots of work on the inside but smoking again - once a day as a reward when everyone is in bed. I have put myself in a bubble where my husband (and his family) can’t hurt me now. In the past, smoking would help to take away the hurt. In a meditation, I was in my childhood home where I was molested and then in my dream, I went to the same home and there was lots of blue light - it was really beautiful.
KRM: Skookum chuck 6x / twice daily for 6 weeks
KRM: Birth Control Pill/ Diane 35
RX: Syphilinum 200C, one dose given.
Comment: Skookum chuck is a homeopathic mineral salt that aids detoxification. Affinity with skin and catarrhal states. Her language still suggests a human remedy. I suspect at some point she will test in needing a human remedy at a C4 level because this seems to be coming from a soul place. However, at this time her system is testing to be cleared of a drug or vaccine. We identified all the chemicals, drugs and vaccines she has had and listed them. Through the testing, her system identified the birth control pill as a problem. As this wasn’t readily available, I tested to see if Syphilinum 200c would serve a similar purpose to antidote this and other drugs.
Follow up: 26/5/11
Lucy stopped smoking 7 weeks ago. Feeling really good. Skin lovely. Broke out before menses and was also very angry, crying falling apart. After the remedy, had a boil along the bikini line - a deep abscess with pus coming out. Through the 6 weeks taking the Skookum chuck, boils were coming and going.
Putting in boundaries for her husband who has been smoking dope, gambling and drinking again.
KRM: Nicolum fluoratum 200C three times a day for three days
RX: Skookum chuck 6x daily
RX: Lac equinum 1M as needed for anger before periods.
Comment: Natrum fluoratum is about being stuck in a situation where one is trying to control a ‘fluoric’ situation - her husband opting out through drugs and gambling. Syphilitic miasm.
Issues with skin, hormones and weight have returned. Enlarged cervical glands – she has had a history of glandular fever as a teenager. Nausea with last period similar to morning sickness.
“My body feels very self-conscious, I mainly don’t like it around the middle. There is almost some comfort there because it reminds me of pregnancy. I went to that stage where I started to love myself. I had all these lovely clothes, smooth belly, part of me wants to be pregnant. My tailbone has started to come forward; it stuck out badly after childbirth. During pregnancy I had lovely clear skin and afterwards all the scarring came.
"When I lose even a couple of kilos I feel really good, especially from around the middle. There is a comfort around my posture when I don’t have all this weight around my tummy. I walk taller, I can move freely. I am distressed to wake up and feel this weight around my belly – self-disgust. I feel self-conscious and a bit unworthy. I feel every alone with weight problems, like someone with less value.
"PMT is improving, less anger, had more of the 'wiped out' feeling, fragile for a day or two and can cry easily, but that’s a good release. Menses is every 25 days now.
"On right hand side, I get a few sharp pains before the period - under my appendix scar, that was where I had all the pain and contraction in the birthing - on the right side.”
Craving sweet, grapefruit and cucumbers, raw milk and cream.
KRM: Placenta C220/5 one dose in clinic.
KRM: Tuberculinum 10M one dose 6 days after Placenta remedy then monthly.
Comment: at last, Placenta from the human group of remedies has tested. Interestingly, she has tested positive for a C5 level which indicates an opportunity to facilitate healing at the soul level and in her wider family. When people are clearing though the many layers of toxicity with organ and drainage remedies, they come to a place where they suddenly see a way to navigate a way out of their stuckness. It’s like seeing through clean windows.
Follow-up: 17/2/12 email
"Long time, no see! My skin was quite good after Tuberculinum, long periods of no breakouts, acne more superficial, none of the deep painful ones. Just having a bout of the painful 'glandular' type breakouts now - on face and inner thigh area, and I wondered if I could have another dose of it, please?
"Also, the Placenta remedy was lovely - after only a day or two it felt different. I would recommend it to anyone who has that empty, unloved feeling – being around people and still feeling really alone. It's been a while since I took the remedy - but I have not had that empty feeling again. PS: My husband and I separated early January, it is sad that it came to that, but it’s a positive move."
RX: Tuberculinum 10M monthly with a follow up scheduled for next month.
Comment: when I first started working with Lucy, I did not have access to Placenta C220/5 although I did have C3 potencies. Leaving her husband is a (healthy) C5 response to a destructive situation.
According to Melissa Assilem, Placenta has the following themes: Separation and connection. Internal nourishment. Dreams of being excluded, not needed, fenced off, hard to reach one’s goal. Tiredness, heavy feeling as if dragging limbs up a hill, feeling spaced out, drifting in thoughts, intolerant, indifferent, feeling unloved before menses. Isolated, disconnected, violent and cross in the family, unfinished business, loss of self, need for space, wanting to watch and listen, hiding - wanting to be home, self-reproach, dreams of being pregnant, fat, under water. Wants to build bridges, build on the circle of love. Craving for sweets is an important symptom and has improved with this remedy. Being in a bubble.
Placenta themes resonate throughout this story but Lucy had to find her own timing, when exactly the right remedy was available to bring her out of the Placenta state. Though it is early days in her long-term healing, I see how her system was choosing remedies to nourish herself (Oleum jecoris, Thyroid protocol) and cleanse and detoxify (Skookum chuck, Syphilinum). She was able to release self-punishment through the support of Lac equinum and her deep connection with animals. A mineral element came through Niccolum fluoratum, when she was trying to manage her husband’s destructive behaviour. Each remedy enabled her to come to the place where she could make a deep shift with Placenta.
Following on closely with Placenta, she was ready to work with the underlying Tubercular element which finally surfaced to continue the good work that Oleum jecoris had started. Her system needed Tuberculinum monthly to augment Placenta. Perhaps the tubercular element gave her the substance to follow what Placenta remedy had shown her.
I have come to realize that when homeopathy is practiced without in some way connecting to the quantum field of the patient, we miss valuable information and as a consequence many people may not get the results they want. We live in a complex and toxic environment, where it is increasing difficult to nourish ourselves. Often, our foods are sprayed, irradiated and lifeless, further stressing our detoxification channels. By using the organ support remedies in low potencies, while also working with remedies that stimulate healing at the physical, emotional, cognitive and spiritual levels, we are able to walk beside our clients on their journey of wellness. When our clients are ready, our C4 -C7 remedies take us much deeper into the collective unconscious, enabling healing of ourselves, our families our communities and our relationship with nature.
